“As a direct result of the rollout of Dial's Informatica powered data warehouse, we now have a more detailed focus on core products in terms of sales and service performance. Data warehousing has also completely changed the way Dial manages data as a company, and has indirectly affected the entire organization’s performance and growth.”
